Hey there family & friends!
The MTC has been pretty good! I definitely have had some home sickness, but I'm pulling through! My days really start off with waking up at likeso we can lay in bed and officially wake up before we get out of bed at man what a struggle. Then we usually have study time in our classroom at about 7 a.m. until and then eat breakfast (the breakfast is okay). After breakfast we go back to class and usually have a teacher from like Then we have lunch and are back to class between depending on how long we take to walk back ;). Usually after lunch is when we will stop and get mail, drop letters off and hit up the store on campus. It has snacks, clothes, books, letter writing materials and all that good stuff! Then we go back to class and study some more, work on lessons and stuff until finally we go to dinner at 5 p.m.! Everyday is kind of a little bit different, but that's pretty much our schedule. The food here is okay... some days it just looks pretty gnarly, but other days are actually pretty good!! On Fridays, for dinner we have Papa John's pizza...It's by far my favorite day! They always have other things we can eat too, so no one goes hungry ;).
My Spanish is coming along...I can speak a full sentence now. It's pretty difficult but sometimes I surprise myself because the words will just come out. We have 2 investigators now that we are teaching fully in Spanish. I know I will keep getting stronger with the language.
Kind of funny thing...as you know my last name is Tidwell, and on my tag it says ELDER TIDWELL. Quite a few people have looked at it and they say, "Oh ELDER TOWEL....," umm yeah:/... Hahah!
I really love the district I'm in! They always keep me on my toes! My favorite people by far have been, Elder Hess and Hermana Moore. They are both so funny and each bring something different to the table personality wise that I've needed to make the MTC, well... more bearable, haha.
The weather here has been super cold!! It's a lot like Oregon, just dry and there isn't any green here, which I kinda don't like. I miss how green home is. It has snowed quite a bit here, but it's usually gone within the day. That's pretty much been it! I can't wait untilto write you all again! Thank you so much for your support, emails, and letters! I love you all so much!
- Love ELDER TIDWELL
